    If I didn't 'know' better, I would think the right wing conspiracy, {planned it all} this way, after all, FEAR is their most winning strategy, it worked for 9/11, it worked for CA Prop 8, always has been, always will be until people stop being such stupid lemmings icon_twisted.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    The excerpts above including the thread title are taking phrases out of context to suggest a different meaning than what was intended. Following is what he actually said which I believe the great majority of Americans support. These attempts at confusion are a death rattle from one segment of a political party that has painted itself into a corner with ideology and political correctness that people see as compromising our security. They are becoming desperate like a caged animal.

    "As far as national security, let me just say I obviously am not happy about the events that happened last week in Paris, but I think it's a positive development that it suddenly has forced Americans to confront more carefully the issue of national security," Rubio said. "Because it is the most important thing a president will do and it is the most important function of the federal government."

    "I hope that we focus on that note more, not just for political advantage, but because the world has become a very dangerous place," he continued in an apparent reference to his party's chances to win the presidency and other offices in 2016."

    The terrorist murder of 130 people in Paris isn't a "positive development", regardless of the context in which it was said, especially given it happened just over a week ago. Stupid little prick.

    It's hard to see anything about the attacks as a "positive development". Those words should have never been used in any context referencing the attacks.

    It is a positive development if more people wake up to the dangers and the false policies of those who refuse to associate the terrorism with its religious roots. Not only is the accusation above a death rattle from part of the political spectrum it is also a typical attempt to silence free speech on the matter. It won't work this time.

    There is never anything positive about a terrorist attack. You are entitled to be happy that terrorists attacks occur to give your side talking points, but others are entitled to think otherwise...

    You don't know what side I'm on except on the side against the Obama policies which is now starting to include Democrats. Equating the positive development with being "happy" about terrorist attacks is the typical bullshit that people like you put out. You are irrelevant and what you write is BS. (Oh and go ahead and be offended at "people like you".)

    Code for: "Hopefully more people will shit themselves and vote Republican.", which is probably what Rubio was thinking too.

    If that's the position the leading Democrats continue to push then yes.

    What, pushing rationality versus ignorant fear-mongering?

    Not much point arguing about that here. Voters will decide what might be fear-mongering and what might be taking needless risks. The House vote to pause the refugee program until sufficient vetting can occur passed with enough Democrats to override a veto. Senate is up in the air but most polls show people support such measures. Obama and Clinton policies in this continue to appeal to an increasingly small segment of the voting public.

    Exactly, but you're trying to debate with liberals, so don't expect them to understand common sense.

    In this case there are many liberals who have common sense to not admit groups with a high percentage of young males who cannot be vetted. They realize historical facts about refugees are not relevant because ISIS and their threats is a recent thing. Even our esteemed rep Pelosi told her colleagues to vote as they needed to (but she thinks a veto would be sustained). The ones who continue to support Obama's poor policies are becoming an increasingly small segment but they seem to be well represented on RealJock.

    To be fair, it seems somewhat normal in certain circumstances to find some good in even the bad, though maybe a faux pas in the timing of it. To that a loved one has died after a long illness we say at least they are no longer in pain. To our own faults we hope to learn from our mistakes, etc. Find the good and praise it, an old friend used to say.

    I do, however, think it a lie to say that these sad deaths "suddenly has forced Americans to confront more carefully the issue of national security." Is there a single American alive and of age then who does not remember 9/11 and not just remember but often recall? We needed fresh French death as reminder? Bullshit. We've been suddenly awaken to troubles in the world? Bullshit.

    Thank God for more terrorism to keep us on our toes? Bullshit.

    icon_sad.gif It is pointless to argue with some of these bleeding heart ultra leftists on here because they just get all bent out of shape.

    You're entitled to your opinion but many believe we have become complacent at least to a degree since 9/11. If you google forgotten lessons of 9/11 you will find much agreement. It is also reasonable to rethink security policies given today's threats, technologies etc. That is often driven by recent events such as examining shoes after the shoe bomber episode. It would be unfortunate if we did not carefully rethink policies in light of recent events.

    The hysteria about this and what Trump and Carson say reflects the belief among an increasing pct of the population that Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy is a disaster. Refusing to acknowledge that Islam is related to terrorism puts them very far out of touch with most Americans. The Democrats realize this and respond with laughable hysteria whenever they can stretch or twist anything Trump, Carson or Rubio say. So far it has the opposite effect.

    Sweetheart, I don't care if you are courteous or not, the point is that there is never any "positive development" from an act of terrorism.

    Ever heard the expression if anything positive can come out of this terrible airplane crash it is the improvements in procedures and training to lesson the likelihood of a similar crash in the future. People don't get their panties unglued because that is not political.
